Neuro-diversity [ND] refers to a range of conditions that cause people to process information differently from the way the majority of people do.
It includes AD(H)D, Asperger’s syndrome, dyscalculia and dyslexia. Many people with ND are also hyper-sensitive to stimuli. Differences may also arise in ways of processing information including language, sound, images light, texture or movement.
Many NDs will be affected by several conditions and syndromes.
Having an ND diagnoses for many is a challenge, others daunting, but with the right knowledge and support people can go on to lead successful, happy and fulfilled lives.
This forum is aimed at parents, young people with any of the aforementioned conditions and those who come into contact.

Taking it all in.
We strongly recommend that those of you with a new diagnosis, or recent suspicians, start with an accessible book such as Understanding ADHD, Autism , Dyslexia and Dyspraxia published by Family Doctor Books. This way you can learn about these conditions gradually and with confidence rather than going for confusion and overload!However, we have lists available of many other books and articles on this subject.
Our aim is to cut through the mass of information out there and point you in the direction of what you need when you need it. We are on hand to help with information, letters, lectures.
